to hp's board. john fortt is joining us. a provocative letter written by dr. lynch. >> it absolutely is, scott. a number of points he raises, he's asking for hp to answer for this $5 billion write-down. he's pointing out that under the accounting rules that he used in europe with autonomy, which are completely above board if they're used correctly, he believes that a number of the things that hp has said were fishy were absolutely appropriate. the way that revenue was recognized for hardware sales, for instance, the way revenue is recognized through sales. he goes on to ask can you really say hp that none of the write-down is because of the way hp managed autonomy after they bought it and what about all the members of the team that left after hp bought it? so a number of these questions might be things that hp is now in the position of responding to, whereas, the way they phrase things in that earnings call last week, they might have hoped to say hey, here's the write-down. here are the issues. we believe there's fraud. this is a number of years figuring it out. now let's move on. it do
don't like the economic outlook in europe. china's going to help us in the very, very near term after the change is announced and after that it's back to same-old, same old and i'm staying to the sidelines for the most part. >> joe teranova? >> i'm waiting if d.c. policymakers will change my mind, what am i looking at? i want to look at apple. obviously an cell very compelling to me, down to 5.30, 5.40 and technologies should have gotten a lift. i also think the financials should have gotten much more of a uplift and i'm long goldman sachs and i wanted to add to goldman sachs and didn't do so. i don't like the price action and the performance. the market today after the significant sell-off that it had yesterday should be rebounding and it's not, and it's problematic and the 200-day moving average at 1980. >> josh brown, are you hiding in the corner like these guys? >> i don't hide. i agree with them, though. well, look, here's the point. so we've recognized this underlying deterioration and fundamentals in economic outlook for month, but the market didn't seem to care so we were happ
's "closing bell" exchange, dan mcmahon from raymond james is going to join us. also, john from gfi group. our senior economics reporter, steve liesman, and our own rick santelli. john, it is clear that the fiscal cliff has wall street's full attention right now. do you expect a -- something to happen by december 31 or not? >> we expect something is going to happen. what that's going to be, we don't have the clarity we're expecting just yet. i think it's simple math. everybody knows what has to be done. obviously, we've had many, many studies over the course of the last few years that tell us what has to be done. so it is math. it's just about them getting in a room and hammering out the details. so we obviously need some revenue and some cuts across the board. i think it's how those are going play out in terms of what portion and how much is going to be what the market's really keying on. i think $4 trillion is basically the number that's kind of out there. i think if it comes in higher than that, it's going to be positive. if it doesn't, it's going to be a negative. >> so steve liesman, what
for government to set the context and not just focus on fiscal issue and talent and entrepreneurship. >> join us tomorrow. "squawk on the street" begins right now. ♪ let's do it ♪ >> a holiday shortened week but no lack of news heading into black friday. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with melissa lee, jim faber, jim cramer at the new york stock exchange. a rally on our hands. whether that's about continued reaction to the meeting between the white house and congressional leaders on friday, maybe some hopes about finance ministers in april or hopes about what bernanke may say say tomorrow in new york. europe also on a tear. most of the major averages up 1% to 2% here as we await a big week in europe as well. we start with the markets. new optimism about the cliff. president obama in myanmar saying he's confident the fiscal situation will be dealt with hours after he hit the phones calling top ceos. >> lowe's shares on better than expected earnings. the results renewing hopes this morning about the housing recovery. >> international pressure mounts for israel and gaza
, and is it sort of the transcendent deal that some people would like or is it a stopgap to get us into the new congress? >> exactly. it will be a stop gap measure because of two simple reasons. a quarter of congress is turning over. they won't make a big deal in front of that. two, house leader boehner has to get re-elected by his party in january. he's not going to put a big deal in front of that. flip side is, no deal. i don't think the president will let that happen because he doesn't want to start his second term as president the way he started the first which was in a recession. but finally, what people fail to forget -- congress needs to go home for holidays. if they go home with no deal they will be criticized by their constituents. >> there are very few working days left when congress comes back from this thanksgiving break. >> remember what happened. t.a.r.p.? they didn't approve it. went home for the holidays, got criticized, came back and approved it. >> you see some stort of stopgap that averts the immediate tax hikes an spending cuts as of january 1, and that there is then some co
sandy, and phil flynn is in the trading pits for the cme for us, and what's pushing oil today, phil? >> well, you know, i think a lot of things, but more than anything, there's a pop up in the crude contract increasing geopolitical risk, al-qaeda attack on the yes , ma'am -- yemen border, and they are there giving a market a boost, but the products rebound after getting crushed on friday. in a weird way, i guess we got to be happy about upcoming gasoline prices because it could be a sign things are getting back to normal in the northeast. price crushinged because -- crushed because of demand. that's given us a rebound in that market. heating oil, of course, the proxy for jet fuel slammed. it got hit harder than any of the oil products. it's coming back a bit as well. all in all, the market being up a little bit, maybe a sign demand could come back as soon as they start to get power to everybody on the northeast. back to you. >> interesting. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> well, the president and governor romney criss-crossing the country in a last minute blitz, no surprise. they w
comes right through. >> also, tomorrow night, all of the nbc universal networks, including us, will air a benefit concert featuring bruce springsteen, john bon jovi, and others. you got to watch it. stay tuned. >>> hi, everybody. we enter the final stretch. welcome to the "closing bell." i'm maria bartiromo at the new york stock exchange. the bill,s market kicking off a new month with a solid rally. investors optimistic ahead of tomorrow's key october job report. >> tomorrow's employment numbers could have a major effect not only on wall street but on the presidential election as well. we'll get market experts to weigh in on that a little later. the other big story, of course, the continued fallout from hurricane sandy. if you have a car in new york, new jersey, other areas affected all along the coast, chances are you're having a hard time filling your gas tank. many stations are still closed. others are seeing huge lines. the question is how long is this going to last? we're going to get into that coming up. >> but first, let's look at where we stand as we approach this fina
creation? >> well, from a corporate standpoint, yes, maria, because most u.s. corporations are sitting on cash. as you saw profit margins hitting all-time highs. they're clearly not hiring a lot. at the end of the day, this whole economy and the stock market is about jobs. the market could be up even more if we start to see some job creation, but we can't be bidding stocks higher unless we start to see some in flows from our private client friends, who by the way, don't buy bond funds. we still think there's a lot of work to do on the investment side in terms of building further fundamental clarity with respect to the option of buying equities versus selling them. >> so you're not jumping on this bandwagon today, this rally we're seeing here? >> no, for one thing, we are just relieved that all of this election stuff is over. that's number one. number two, let's get back to the business of america and stocks going up in america as an asset looking very well on a longer term perspective. however, on a near-term basis, the market in our belief is well ahead of historical norms in terms of
territory. >> the head of mcdonald's u.s. business is out and jeff stratton will assume that business starting january 1. capped off last month with the first decline in monthly sales in about nine years. we'll begin with a teale of two retailers. walmart, revenues coming in short of forecast. -- as for target, the company posted third quarter earnings well above estimates, says it's poised for a strong fourth quarter, but walmart has some issues here, jim. they're talking countries including but not limited to brazil, china and some others too. >> yeah, i was thinking it bick, not brick. russia has been left out of the equation, foreign corrupt investigation, not a great number here at all. the stock had become a very big institutional favorite. if you recall during the mexican investigation, when "new york times" piece it, the stock was trading between 57 and 58. they were then overridden by a couple of really good, solid quarters. this was not the quarter that anyone was looking for. >> except for those who sold the stock over the last couple of weeks. i mean that stock has started
're following today. the ceo of israel based soda stream speaks to us live as a bus bombing rattles tel aviv. but first, let's get to the story all of wall street is watching and that's the trading scandal that is embroiling sac capital. kate kelly has the latest. >> thanks so much, scott. there's a lot of talk of course and one big question given this is just the latest development in an ongoing federal investigation of potential insider trading dealing with former employees of the firm, but yesterday's news which involved the arrest of a former sac employee appears to have drawn stevie cohen into the fray as well. although he is not named by name in the federal or s.e.c. complaint, it clearly seems to be he who discussed one of the trades involved with this former employee and in fact authorized the trade to take place although we don't know what cohen knew about whether the information was ill gotten or not. so the question now becomes what is the investor reaction? are people thinking of redeeming the money from sac or not? this is a firm that has really outperformed, especially in recen

to the numbers from dean mackey joining us from barclay's. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> any hair on the numbers, so to speak, as far as you can tell? >> i think this was a followed report when you look at the broad categories of job growth, when you look at the participation rate rise. the only underlying softness was in ourly earnings, but that really doesn't change the sfoer of where we've been. boug bottom line, the labor market has picked up some of the momentum after slowing down this summer. still a moderate recovery, though. >> yeah. the raining on expectationses w was 30,000 on one end. that beats even the top of the range. how could people have uniformly underestimated the number? >> the problem here is we're getting these upward revisions and so what happened last month the number was 114,000. that's been revised up significantly. if everyone would have known what that number actually was, we probably would have had higher numbers going into today's number. so it's just part of the game here, these upward revisions. >> look iing forward, dean, wit the hurricane and the
this morning's top stories. >>> good morning. we have a big day ahead of us. and the fiscal cliff conversation begins today. president obama will be making a statement on the economy. he'll speak from the east room of the white house at 1:05 eastern time. you can of course catch all of it right here on cnbc. john boehner is also scheduled to hold a you news conference today, as well. st. louis fed president james bullard is saying the u.s. economy is strengthening. but he's cautioning that leaders must tackle the looming fiscal cliff. a conversation we can't get away from. speaking in missouri yesterday, bullard also says he doubts the central bank will extend a bond maturity extension program that expires at the end of the year. bullard is not currently a voting member, but he will ebb in 2013. and china's national congress continues with new leaders for the communist party set to be named later this morning. today a rising star said the party is moving towards requiring officials to their their assets. so an interesting piece in the chinese business press this morning. >> we have been talkin

yesterday via those sites reopen again today from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. open for us, saturday 1:00 until 5:00 and we will keep them open as long as they are needed. we have to come up with a long-term plan for people out of their homes for months, not able to cook and find food, and we're working on that but our first concern is to meet the immediate needs of people and hope what electricity comes back to some, the population that will really need our help will be down to it more manageable size but whatever size it is i am convinced we have the resources and the drive and the management to do so. anyone who visit visit one of o3 sites will be able to take three meals and bottles of water. people should bring their own bags to carry the food and water if at all possible. to publicize their hours and locations of these homes they've handed out thousands of flyers in english and spanish and chinese in the affected areas, but officials were present in those communities and their staff going door to door to help us get the word out and we have posted the site locations on the city's website. a
for joining us, everybody. why do you think that? >> well, as many of your guests have told you today, it's removing that uncertainty. i think this market doesn't care who wins. they'll finally put it to rest. they'll finally know who they're dealing with. it's better the devil you know than the devil you don't. >> gary, you're really focused on that fiscal cliff. are they going to be able to work this out? tell us how you envision this taking place after the election. >> we think this is the critical problem the country faces after the election. we see several scenarios. one is just kick the can down the road. we don't think that's the most likely scenario. the other is going over the fiscal cliff. we don't think that's the most likely scenario. we think there will be some compromise which will create some fiscal drag for the economy. >> if they've not been able to come to a compromise on this yet -- and by the way, this all happened one year ago. everybody who was in place today, that includes the president and congress, this happened on their watch. so you would think that they would s

defense system. u.s. lawmakers are closely following the developments. >>> the united states of america has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this israeli/palestinian issue. so many events are making that process go forward. >> senator mccain goes on to believe he thinks the u.s. should send a high-ranking official. >> this is the first visit ever. coming up at 7:15, the other history-making stop on the president's stop. >> three people have been arrested now in connection with the death of a homeless man in santa cruz. police say the body of the 51- year-old victim was found late saturday night. he was pronounced dead at the camp site south of depot park. shortly after police say they found the suspects, jeremiah long, michael hudson and shaland gonzalez. they were booked for murder. the oakland tribune says the police union filed a harsh critique in court. the union also claims internal affairs investigators resulted in injust -- resulted in unjust charges. a judge will hear arguments about whether to appoint a federal receiver. >>> volunteers are preparing to serve holiday mea
-bi-ya moment after the meeting. they said nothing across the pond will hurt us, let's buy here. >> no sense of urgency right now. does the market feed off that? is that what's going on here? >> i continue to look at the treasury market. you can look at a chart overlaid with the stock market. we were following themmer earlier, especially with the opening you describe, then it started to fall off. treasury market seems unimpress unimpressed. i'm in agreement with art, which is a good thing because art is mostly right, that is, nobody's driving the car from a political standpoint. that's the only time i can say a car without a driver is a safer car to be in. the market is reflecting that. if you want to look at something to give you a good clue, watch the euro relationship with our stock market and the global stock markets. that relationship is directly correlated and something to pay attention to. >> as the euro goes, so does our markets. stand by, we have break news on a story we've been watching on hostess. kayla has that. >> the latest is that the u.s. bankruptcy judge said that the partie
-on cnbc interview. good to have you on the program. thanks for joining us. >> sure, maria. >> well, tell us, what happened first yesterday at final mediation talks? was a deal ever close? >> you know, the judge has a gag order. he'll have my head if i talk about what went on during the mediation, but i think that he wanted to make sure that he did everything in his power to try to find a deal, if there was one to be found. you know, i appreciate the fact that he went through that effort. i was hopeful, but i think realistically that was going to be a tough thing to pull off. >> how much of an implication it was the fact the union leader did not show up to those mediation talks? >> well, the leader of the bakers union sent his second in command to the meeting. i think that part of what we needed to sort of focus on is the hole that's been created by the strike and the financial damage from that strike and our inability to produce at some of our critical plants. really just created a brand new hole that was too large to fill. bankrupt companies don't have a lot of margin for error to begin

to the market? courtney reagan at the real-time exchange breaking it down for us. good evening to you, courtney. >> good evening, larry. last night might have been overwhelmingly blue but today it was all red. the day after the presidential election saw the dow shift 312 points, marking the biggest point loss so far this year for the index. but it could have been worse. at session lows the dow was actually off by 369 points. the sell-off was broadbased and multifaceted. some point to wall street's disappointment with president obama's re-election. but ecb head mario draggi's comments about weakness in europe affecting germany and apple's move into correction territory certainly didn't help things either. now, financials selling off as the market anticipates. another obama term could mean financial regulation is here to stay. coal stocks the hardest hit in the wake of romney's loss. we know he was a supporter. and while not all health care names performed well, hospital stocks did soar today, with obama care set to remain in place money will continue to flow to the hospitals. as you can see, you
